Carlton’s Charlie Curnow could join his brother Ed at the AFL Tribunal on Tuesday night after new footage shows Curnow making contact with an umpire during the Blues’ win over Essendon on Saturday.
Less than 10 minutes after Ed made contact with an umpire, Charlie can also be seen putting his hand on an umpire late in the third quarter.

AFL.com.au‘s match review expert Nick Bowen told the AFL website he expects both Curnow brothers to be referred directly to the Tribunal, and believes both will get a week for their respective incidents.
That would see both Ed and Charlie miss Carlton’s clash with Melbourne on Sunday afternoon.
